Hi I just got al etter in from Renfrewshire Council saying I owe them £1102 from an address that I lived at over 11 years ago.
Now between 1996 to 2002 approx I did have some really bad financial problems and I didnt pay my council tax at the time for a few years.(mainly because they never ever sent me a bill even though I was and did register to vote at this address during this time)
Now in October 2003 they sent me bills for the years that I had failed to pay and I then decided to get a loan out to pay off all the arrears that I belived I owed to bring my council tax up to date
Now they are asking for more money and I thought I had paid off all the arrears in 2003 and my point is how can I check up what I have payed for years 1996-2002 and what I owe so as I know that I deffonatly owe this money.
If I owe it I will pay it but I want to be sure I do owe it and really dont have a clue how to check back to well over 12 years of records?
Also how far back can they chase a council tax debt as Im sure this debt must be over 11 years old
Thanks in advance
